I have always enjoyed Denzel's movies! And Viola is just such a major presence right now and doing so amazing in her roles! Having Denzel Washington and Viola Davis star together in the Fences movie makes the DVD entirely worth owning.
This movie really makes you want to live your dreams, and I love when a movie inspires me to be better! Fences, starring Academy Award® winner Denzel Washington & Academy Award® winner Viola Davis releases on dvd March 14th, 2017.
The movie is set in the 1950’s, but there are so many current issues being shared in the plot, such as parenting hurdles, marital issues, and personal striving for dreams. It's tough to watch Troy navigate through his personal heartbreak after his Negro League baseball career is over. You can see he is raw with emotions but still has his charms.
His wife Rose, played by Viola Davis, is the balance to her husband and holds the family together. It's a roller-coaster of emotions with this family and it draws you in and keeps you entertained. Viola Davis gives such an incredibly powerful performance in this movie, you will need a box of tissues at hand!
This film was nominated for quite a few Oscars this season, including Best Picture, Best Actor, Best Writing Adapted Screenplay, and Viola Davis took home an Oscar for Best Supporting Actress for her work on Fences.
